During the episode, she explained that she met the former rugby player on a dating app.

“Oh, he is too good to be true,” she said of her first reaction to his profile.

“I said, ‘Oh, my God! He’s exactly what he looks like on the app.’ He’s tall, he’s handsome, he looks like a Viking,” she added of her impression upon meeting up with him for the first time for a date.

While she confirmed the romance, she also said she is still “single”: “I’ve had a couple of dates here and there, you know with the pandemic in place it’s just been so hard to meet people. So my niece got me on Hinge and then got me on Raya, so I’ve been kind of flirting on some dating apps. It’s so much fun to date but with COVID it’s hard to date, so I feel like flirting is the next best thing,” she said.

“I don’t look at myself as famous — I really don’t. I’m just basically living my best life on The Housewives…I’m just a girl who’s looking to date really,” she said of being recognized on the apps.

“A guy is either like ‘I can handle that’ or ‘I can’t,’ so it weeds out a lot of people.”

She also opened up about her decision to drink again after going sober.

During the episode, Luann was asked if “all the sober talk” on the current season of the reality TV series “was just for the camera.”

She then clarified that she “had to be sober because I was on probation,” which was a “heavy thing to live with.”

“If I had a drink, I could go to jail,” she revealed.

“It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through.”

“When I got through to the other side I really had the choice myself to decide if I wanted to drink or not and I felt in a good place and I felt I was back in the driver’s seat. Now I don’t have anybody watching over my shoulder except for me. I got through it, and thank God.”

Back in 2017, Luann was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida for being drunk, disorderly and attacking a policeman.

I think a lot of people are struggling and they don’t know how to help themselves…she sings about ‘Sober,’ and even in ‘Feeling Jovani,’ I talk about ‘one day at a time,’” she said.
